Rant & Rave for Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2012

VALDOSTA — Local pharmacies and doctors should give notices to their customers who give them business and not surprise them when they suddenly go out of business or  move.

Why is VSU ticketing parents and patrons for parking during a VSU "hosted" event? Several parents received parking citations for parking without a permit during last nights Jazz Concert. As both a parent of a performing student and a VSU Alum, I find this a poor practice. Transportation should not be issuing citations at these events. These lots are actually listed as parking areas for these events on the VSU website. They certainly don't during football games. Even non VSU games.

Somebody is not telling us the truth about the real reasons for removing the McIntosh airplane ...

Really enjoyed the VSU, Valdosta and Lowndes Jazz concert last night held at the Whitehead Auditorium in the VSU Fine Arts Building. Great Job to all!

When the difference in gas prices are 5-10 cents higher, then someone is greedy and taking the public.

I would like to thank KB horse camp and their supporters for the Christmas gifts and the continued prayers for our daughter Emsley. Everyone involved with KB horse camp is absolutly wonderful and we cannot thank you enough!!

Benjamin Franklin said "I think the best way of doing good to the poor is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it." The Republican party says let them eat cake.

I would like to thank my teacher from the PLC, Mr. Earp for helping me straighten out my life. Instead of joining a gang I've joined the Air Force.

Rave to VCS for wanting to involve the community in the planning of the new Pinevale Elementary, BUT a HUGE rant that they chose February 14th to have the forum. Hello, is anyone thinking? It's Valentines Day! A day to celebrate your loved ones. Not a day to spend in a school cafeteria discussing floor plans. Have some respect for the families in the community, especially those who have made reservations, well in advance, of the announced meeting.

If the Berrien BOE would clean house at the board office with 49% salaries and triple figure assistants, they wouldn't have to penalize "other" programs, i.e., the medical clinic or local doctors for their "cut" of the dividends. After all, the med clinic was grant funded.

    Funny, the people criticizing immigrants coming here looking for a better life for their family, are only here because their ancestors immigrated here for a better life for their family.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    Is it another sign of the times that people are too lazy to send thank you notes? I’ve bought four wedding gifts and two baby shower gifts since April 1. To date, I've received just one thank you note. It’s just good manners!

    It cracks me up when people say they don't want to be in a business or location where people are carrying weapons. My husband is a police officer and when he's off duty, he always carries concealed. I have a strong feeling that you might be happy one day that one of the hundreds of off duty officers are "packing" if you ever have a need for them!

    People rant on here, but don't bother to attend the County Commission's meeting about the tax increase. I bet you don't vote either. If not, you forfeit your chance to gripe. Just hush!

    Some hillbillies have more money than you do, they just don't flaunt it. Most are hard working, good people, unlike the wealthier, selfish, spoiled, inconsiderate brats. You can lose all your money and education in a blink of an eye. Be thankful God has allowed you to be or have what you do and treat others as you want them to treat you.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!

    It’s a shame to work for someone who gripes all the time. Never a “How are you” or “Thanks for your hard work!”

    I think that all facilities owned by the city and county should have signs banning firearms in the buildings. I don’t feel safe if a firearm is there when I am there.

    There are some wealthy physicians, business owners in this town who target only certain demographics for their business, and reject competition and growth. With the new statistics of a shrinking Valdosta, I hope you and your selfishness are quite happy when your comfort zone disappears!
